Also, what made his previous films stand out is their claims of no wires, CG and no camera tricks... all 100 % ability. That made him kind of the new Jackie Chan, but this film went more of the supernatural route and introduced wires and more special effects, which made the marital arts less impressive. Utilizing unused footage from "Ong-bak 2" this film takes off where that one left off with Jaa finding his village destroyed and then seeking revenge. That's a passable enough of set-up for a martial arts film, but this film then focuses A LOT on Buddhism philosophy which is not what I was looking for in a kung-fu (or muay thai) flick. And not that I'm against a film teaching eastern religions, but this one was not a very good one. Stick with "Kundun" instead for that and stick with Jaa's other film instead of this one.

And I am so glad that I did. It turned out to be a really good movie. Very interesting, and really well made. I love movies where the underdog overcomes. This is definitely one of them.

(de) wrote: Life for Jews and blacks in 1950's America. That sentence pretty much sums up the film. There's no plot, instead it's a character-lead film but sadly the characters are so cliched that the film ends up being supremely mediocre. Brody is good but has nothing to do, it's Foster who has the most interesting storyline - it's just a shame it's Romeo + Juliet all over again. This film really could have done with some darkness or a threat (there's a kidnapping but the tone is way too light) to give it some grit and substance.
(fr) wrote: Stephen King's "Maximum Overdrive" got remade into this weak TV movie. The original film isn't exactly a classic, though I do have a soft spot for it, so it's kind of surprising a remake would have been made. This film lacks the attack on humans by any and all electronic devices, and instead focuses pretty much on just trucks laying siege to a small group trapped in a diner. This film also doesn't feature nearly as memorable of a cast. Timothy Busfield and Brenda Bakke were the only cast members who I'd heard of, and neither is as cool or as memorable as Emilio Estevez, Pat Hingle, or Yeardley Smith, Even if King dubbed his version a "moron movie" it was still better than this one which is also dumb but also not very fun either.

(gb) wrote: Parodying a film like "Fifty Shades of Grey" is a strange choice considering that film already feels like a spoof within itself. "Fifty Shades of Black" is a disappointing and unfocused mess that fails to offer enough laughs.
